Fabrizio Romano via The Guardian is reporting that AC Milan have reached a deal with Ralf Rangick to takeover as the new manager for the club for the 2020/21 season. The 62 year old is currently the Head of Sport and Development at Red Bull. He has formerly managed RB Leipzig, Schalke 04 and Hoffenheim. He has been a sporting director for RB Salzburg and RB Leipzig.

Alessandro Alciato of Sky Italia is reporting that Rangnick will take over as the new coach, technical director and medical supervisor. He reports that CEO Ivan Gazidis has informed Maldini of the arrival of Rangnick who has reportedly signed the deal. Maldini is being offered the opportunity to stay on as a Club Ambassador as Rangnick takes over his role but the Milan legend is likely to turn this down. Stefano Pioli will remain in charge until the end of the season but will not retain his role despite the massive achievements of the past weeks.
